Bunker Mentality, arguably the UK’s most fashionable golf clothing company, has appointed the first of its 50 new brand Ambassadors – which include golfers of all abilities and from all walks of life.
Professional Paul Streeter became the first-ever Bunker Mentality Ambassador just hours before competing in the BMW Championship at Wentworth last month.
Taking on some of the biggest names in golf, the father-of-three from Southwell GC, Notts, missed the cut by just one shot, but beat scores posted by stars like Darren Clarke, Ernie Els and Colin Montgomerie.
Paul, a former semi-professional footballer with Lincoln City, showcased Bunker Mentality’s new Two-Tone Playa shirt in pink, Skitch ‘snow‘ trousers and distinctive white ‘Broken Star’ hipsway belt on day one of the event, where he carded a two-over par 74.
On day two, wearing the green Tee Playa shirt and grey Bunker Royale sweater from the latest Bunker Mentality 2008 collection, he carded 72 but an 8 on the par 5 12th wrecked his chances of making the cut.
Robert Hart of Bunker Mentality said, “Paul looked great and played really well. He was so unlucky to miss the cut by just one stroke, because apart from the 12th his card was faultless on the second day. We couldn‘t have asked for much more from him – it was great to see our new collection on Tour for the first time and he represented us brilliantly in every way.”
Bunker Mentality launched its exciting Ambassadors Programme last month. The Nottingham-based company is looking for 50 golfers to wear its clothing this season – at Tour events, to club competitions and right down to friendly knock-ups.
Golfers apply to become a BM Ambassador online at www.bunker-mentality.com. Once selected, they are able to buy £500 of stock for £200.
Bunker Mentality is currently available in Harrods, selected american golf stores, and a number of golf clubs, including The Grove and De Vere Belton Woods.
The company’s intention is to create a range of clothing that can be worn ‘from first tee to last orders‘. Its designers draw inspiration from popular culture and ‘golfize‘ them. The brand is pushing the envelope of golf clothing without compromising golf etiquette.
